As an educator, facilitator, and curriculum developer, I have worked in a variety of formal and informal educational settings both locally and internationally. As an educator, I bring a commitment to constructivism and humanism in the classroom, which emphasize learners being actively involved in creating meaning knowledge and meaning. Presently, I work as a Curriculum Consultant at the at the Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where I support departments and units to develop curriculum and related courses and materials. I also teach in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College. My formal education includes a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Curriculum as well as a Master of Arts in Society, Culture, and Politics in Education. I also hold a PhD in Educational Studies from UBC.

My research interests include teacher inquiry, arts-based educational research, student engagement, and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). I am committed to education as a tool for social change and I strive to create spaces where research is about ‘re-searching’ both individually and collectively. Firmly believing in the importance of relationships and engaging in the community, I actively seek out opportunities to work in partnership with students and community members. As a researcher, I aim to create opportunities for research partners and participants to engage as equal voices in research and inquiry processes. My research inquiries are motivated by a desire to see a more equal and just world – a world where all voices are valued and at the table.

While many are still adapting to online learning, Adult Education at UFV has been leading the way! I’ve taken online courses from other institutions, and UFV’s dedication to technologies made for my best overall online learning experience. The most important thing about my experience at UFV is the feeling that I mattered to the school and my instructors. I wasn’t just a faceless student, even in an online environment.
